The Vita sells over 300,000 units in the first two days

Japan finally saw the release of the Sony PlayStation Vita and how well did it do? Well, it sold 321,400 units in the first two days, which put it a little behind what the 3DS did in its first two days. Not bad for a $250 device.

Now, of course it's not how it did initially, but how well it's going to do in the long haul. With a $250 price tag, it might be tough to sustain any good sales rate and we've yet to see how well it's going to do in other markets, of course.

I still haven't heard of anyone around me itching to buy one. It seemed like a nice little device at E3 when I handled it, but I was never a fan of the previous Sony handheld and I wasn't going to pick this one up either. Still, I hope the Vita does succeed and we see solid support for the device. I won't be surprised though if the Vita doesn't sell well in the first few months and we see a quick price cut, ala the 3DS.
